On October 16-18, 2019, MTU Onsite Energy hosted its 11th annual Engineering Symposium at the factory in Mankato, MN. Curtis Engine took 49 people to the Symposium -- the largest single group in attendance and also the largest group Curtis has ever brought. Approximately 500 people from North and South America were in attendance. Attendees were mostly electrical engineers, but there were also end users, suppliers and energy service companies present.
As Curtis Engine’s 75th anniversary year begins to wind down, it’s time to look to the future. What is the outlook for Curtis Engine during the next five to 10 years? What market factors and opportunities will drive the company’s growth? What strengths will the company be able to draw on? What challenges will need to be overcome?
Dial back to 1963 through 1993 to the stark enclave of factories, taverns, and warehouses of Southeast Baltimore. The setting is the former Curtis Engine facility located on Holabird Avenue. Sitting on an incline on more than two acres in this gritty slice near Dundalk was the service department building. Down the hill was the main building that housed parts and people.

In the Summer issue of our Power Generation PULSE eNewsletter, we examine the question: What is involved in a successful generator set installation? To come up with the answers, we spoke with three of Curtis Engine’s longtime electrical contracting partners. Don D’Amato, President Electric Advantage
Calling for a near-normal hurricane season, NOAA predicts four to eight hurricanes this year – including two to four major hurricanes. National Hurricane Center data show that at least 13 hurricanes affected Mid-Atlantic states between 1995 and 2017. Many of us have vivid memories of Hurricane Isabel in September 2003, one of the most destructive tropical cyclones to ever hit the Baltimore area. All it takes is one powerful storm to wreak havoc on communities in its path.
The Baltimore Museum of Industry was the perfect setting for Curtis Engine’s recent 75th anniversary bash. Over the decades, Curtis Engine has evolved into the Mid-Atlantic region’s leader in providing world-class power generation equipment and service for commercial, institutional and government customers.
